Description:
he aim of this thesis is to examine if a difference exists in income for different categories of drinkers in Ireland using the 2007 Slán data set. The possible impact of alcohol consumption on health status and health care utilisation is also examined. Potential endogeneity and selection bias is accounted for throughout. Endogeneity is where an i ndependent variable included in the model is determined within the context of the model (Chenhall and Moers, 2007). An endogenous relationship between income and alcohol and between health and alcohol is accounted for by the use of separate income equation s and separate health status equations for each category of drinker similar to what was done in previous studies into the effects of alcohol on earnings ( Hamilton and Hamilton, 1997; Barrett, 2002).
